The main focus of the Adult and Community Education Class program is on the delivery of non-accredited training, with the majority of courses aimed at enhancing the personal development of participants.

In 2002, there were 31,153 student enrolments representing delivery of 344,996 hours of training. Over 62.7% of adult and community education was delivered in the Greater Hobart-Southern Region, 21.0% in the Northern Region and 16.3% in the Mersey-Lyell Region. The regional distribution of training delivery has remained relatively stable in the three years 2000 to 2002.

Traditionally, the Adult and Community Education Class program has been strongly supported by female students. This trend has continued in 2002 with female enrolments representing 73.2% of total student enrolments.
